Set: 1995-96 SkyBox Impact (Rate)

Card: #194 Jon Klemm

“ Impact was used only once in the NBA, in 1999-00. I didn't know the name had a legacy in the world of cards until I joined the Database, now several years ago. It turns out I tend to like the sets using that name in other sports more than I like the design of the NBA release. This is no exception. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Not a huge fan of this design. Like Skybox in general. Hate designs with the foil/leaf lettering like this one. Very Difficult to read them in real life can't read them online. Also no stats even though he is a rookie there should be either his last minor league stuff or college if this was the base card. ” -captkirk42

“ This was okay nice front pictures kinda blah backs though. Great defenceman won 2 cups with the Aves. ” -uncaian

“ There were much better product options that year. Of course, there were worse too. At least these generally had very nice photography. ” -vrooomed

“ What's up with no stats on the back of the card? Really dislike that. ” -carthage44

“ When sinks in that this guy is a 2-time Stanley Cup Champion, it really cheapens the idea of being a Stanley Cup Champion. ” -wax_house

“ For the '90s, this was a great sweater. The Avs tried to modernize it in the EDGE template, but I think they need to go to a simple striping pattern with their colors. ” -jlaz10

“ I will guess that maybe his name is in that stripe on the side. I do like the back. I sort cards by player, so lack of stats doesn't bother me. There's always another card of the same guy close by with stats. ” -switzr1

“ Didn't like the design of anything SkyBox. A totally useless set in my opinion. ” -suomibear8

Set: 2012 Topps Strata Hobby (Rate)

Card: #131 Anquan Boldin

“ Hate the computerized backgrounds. ” -carthage44

“ I always found this set to be interesting. The back ground looks like a garage or storage shed door. The think I hate about this set is the variations/short prints and no way of knowing which you have at first when getting them second hand. If you get them from the packs you usually know, but most of my cards I get second hand now days. ” -captkirk42

“ I do not really like this card. It's like they couldn't think of what to do, so they just made up some silly background. A real photo would have been much better. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Has to be from preseason practice. No knee pads and only crew socks. ” -jlaz10

“ One of those sets where the hobby and retail base cards are not the same. Which makes this set a zero in my book. Even if Anquan does appear to be making a catch on the Death Star. ” -switzr1

Set: 2008 Choice Buffalo Bisons (Rate)

Card: #10 Yamid Haad

“ I love MiLB cards, and this is no exception. I just wish if a company is going to have photos front and back, use a different photo. ” -vrooomed

“ Wow High Quality design for Minor league stuff. Me Likey. ” -captkirk42

“ Minor League cards are starting to grow on me! ” -carthage44

“ Good looking set design. I like it. ” -switzr1

“ Yamid Haad a short career. Goodnight ladies and gents! Try the salmon! ” -wax_house

“ Interesting minor-league throwback. Would have been much better with proper hosiery, though. ” -jlaz10

Set: 1995-96 Collector's Choice German I (Rate)

Card: #27 Michael Cage

“ I am still trying to find my international editions...I had the box of them earlier this year, put them someplace with the intent to sort them by language then enter them...and promptly misplaced them. The hazards of having dozens of white card boxes that all look pretty much the same. Would love to see the Cavs wear these uniforms as a throwback. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Like many 90s cards when I first saw this set I thought "UGH HATE IT" (say that in the "Men on" character voices from "IN Living Color") but like many of those sets it did grow on me some. ” -captkirk42

“ Probably my favorite Collectors Choice design. Has any team overhauled the look of their uniforms more times than the Cavaliers? ” -switzr1

“ How hard were these cards to find? Did they release them only in Germany? ” -carthage44

“ Those Cavs jerseys were SWEET. ” -wax_house

“ Pretty good bang for the buck. Two decent action phots, all the stats and at least they have a team logo on the back. I strongly dislike lower case letters. ” -SFC Temple

“ Ah, the 90s in basketball design... ” -jlaz10

Set: 2006-07 Upper Deck MVP (Rate)

Card: #252 Martin Rucinsky

“ I think this design would be better suited for an insert set. Not enough space on the front devoted to the picture. Way too much border on both sides. ” -switzr1

“ The MVP product was a nice affordable product. Usually, their designs were pretty good. This one should be less design, and more photo on the front. The back, with the same design is ok. ” -vrooomed

“ I like this design except I've never liked the "MVP" "sets". Come on not every player is an MVP. Kind of silly to make a 100 card base set filled with current MVPs. An insert set or subset of 30 cards (1 card per team) is fine, but a whole set? Yeah I know UD has done the MVP for years and years but I never liked the concept. ” -captkirk42

“ Not a fan of the font on the back, or the fake signature, but otherwise a decent card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Cool card from Upper Deck. Could use a bit more of an action card but good details on the back. ” -Mihome316

“ Still playing in the Czech league at age 43! Had a nice NHL career, 600+ points. ” -wax_house

“ Facsimile auto or was this card hand signed? ” -carthage44

Set: 1991 Topps Toxic Crusaders (Rate)

Card: #21 An Unscheduled Flight

“ Toxie's tip made me laugh. Otherwise, I'm not sure what to think of this card. ” -switzr1

“ Toxi! I had forgotten that they made a trading card set of the Toxic Avenger er Crusaders cartoon show. ” -captkirk42

“ Fill water pistols with ink? Toxie is a real jerk. ” -mkaz80

“ Knock off to the Toxic Avenger? I like the tip on back which states to save water by filling water guns with ink. I am sure parents would love that! ” -carthage44

Set: 2012 Topps - Prolific Playmakers Autographs (Rate)

Card: #PPA-JW Jerel Worthy

“ Really dislike the computerized uniforms they put on these cards. ” -carthage44

“ Well, this would be a Worthy addition to anyone's collection. (Sorry, I couldn't resist) ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Yeah, right! Two seasons, 15 tackles...a real playmaker. A lot of photoshop work on this card. ” -C2Cigars

“ Sticker! Boo. ” -vrooomed

“ Jerel Worthy was an absolute monster at Michigan State. I had a buddy in the dorms at MSU who was also a Packers fan, and when we heard that Jerel was drafted by Green Bay, we flipped out. ” -Howintensive

“ Nice card. I just wish they would do away with the on-sticker stuff and just stick with on-card autographs. Also serial numbering autograph cards should be standard. Just noticed that Worthy was wearing 00. I didn't think any team did that anymore. ” -captkirk42

Set: 1997-98 Donruss Limited (Rate)

Card: #44 Patrick Roy / Jocelyn Thibault

“ I've always had mixed feelings about front/back 2-player cards like this. If I sort by player, it looks really bad in a binder because an odd player is present. If I sort by set, it looks really good in a binder because there are no traditional card backs to look at. ” -switzr1

“ If there has to be two or multiple players in same card, I prefer them to be on same side. Because you can never have absolutely equal sides. There is always that front side guy and that back side guy. ” -Duke

“ Don't really like this set much. I prefer each player getting their own card. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Two for one, nice! ” -carthage44

“ UGH. Don't like much of anything about this one. Chrome for one which rarely scans well. Not a fan of either team or player. At least the two players are goalies so that is the common bond to be on the same card called "counterparts". Often times they will pair two players with no connections at all. ” -captkirk42

“ The ability to toggle between front and back makes this card even cooler. ” -wax_house

“ Have several of these. Not a fan of two players front and back, but the cards were shiny and cool. ” -vrooomed

“ Last week, 32 years after buying my first pack of baseball cards, I finally got a bunch of hockey cards -stickers actually- in a flea market. The only vaguely familiar name was Patrick Roy. ” -volbox

Set: 1994 SkyBox Star Trek The Final Frontier Cinema Collection (Rate)

Card: #08 Campfire Philosophy

“ I'm preparing to toast a marshmellon. ” -koloth42

“ I would be happy if they never did any more of these oversize cards...a fad we did not need in the first place in my opinion. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Guess I'm just a dinosaur, but I loved (and still do love) the old (albeit "cheesy" compared to nowadays) episodes! ” -bkklaos

“ Marshmellons, anyone? ” -DaClyde

“ Somewhere, someone just realized that their collection of cards depicting a campfire scene is incomplete ” -jackal726

“ Yum Roasting Marshmallons on an ancient camp fire. ” -captkirk42

“ Never saw this movie. After reading the back of this card, I doubt I ever will. ” -switzr1

Set: 1993-94 Pinnacle Canadian (Rate)

Card: #334 Neal Broten

“ Classic set. Interesting, but sad and gloomy design. These are very very hard to keep in good condition. Black cardboard doesn't stay black for a long time, at least from corners and edges. I believe that graded ones are going to be pretty expensive in the future. ” -Duke

“ I like this set. Pinnacle did a pretty good job, most of the time.Broten was a strong center man & a mainstay on the Stars offense,finally got the cup with New Jersey. ” -uncaian

“ I like the simple Pinnacle but the 1992-93 and this 1993-94 set are WAY too similar looking. I often misplace cards from these years in the wrong set. ” -captkirk42

“ They should go back to being called the North Stars. ” -carthage44

“ Probably the most successful player to come out of the 1980 USA Olympic team. ” -Howintensive
